Upcoming performances at the Theatre Royal Wakefield for January and February 2017:

Cathy Wednesday 8 February
Don't miss this great opportunity to see Cardboard Citizens' acclaimed new play Cathy.
This Forum Theatre production - an interactive style of theatre that empowers you to change the outcome - is inspired by Ken Loach's ground-breaking film Cathy Come Home.
Candid, poignant and intimate, Cathy explores the impact of forced spiralling housing costs, gentrification and the challenges of forced relocation.
'At a time of escalating house prices and entrenched inequality, touching and troubling productions like this may be just as urgent now as they were
half a century ago'
